|Tips and Tricks To Earn Points On Jigsaw|
|Thursday, 09 September 2010 12:27|
I'm a huge fan of Jigsaw and it serves as my go-to-tool for company or people search. The one thing I hear from people who are getting started with Jigsaw is "how do I build up my points?" For those unfamiliar with the Jigsaw point system, Jigsaw offers free as well paid subscription plans. The paid plans range from $250 to $5000 per year which give you 250-1500+ contacts with a $1.00 cost for additional ones. The free plan only allows for a pay per contact of $5. The beauty of Jigsaw, however, is in their point system. Users are actually rewarded for providing updated contact and company information in the form of points which basically equate to 1 point = $1 in Jigsaw money. There are a number of ways to earn points and I thought I would offer some of my favorites.
Mail in your pile of business cards and earn Jigsaw points using Shoeboxed

Shoeboxed is a mail-in service that makes it easy to digitize and organize your business cards and earn Jigsaw points. Simply use postage-paid Shoeboxed envelopes to mail in your pile of business cards. (You can also submit business card images from any mobile device!)
